Joleon Patrick Lescott (born 16 August 1982) is an English professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Sunderland. He plays as a centre-back, though he has played in various other positions across the defensive line, including left-back.

Born in Birmingham, Lescott is a graduate of the Wolverhampton Wanderers youth academy. He made his first team debut with Wolves in 2000 and he was named the supporters' Young Player of the Year two years running. He was a regular player as the club won promotion to Premier League in 2003, but missed the whole season through injury and they were relegated. He was named in the Championship team of the year for the 2005–06 season, and subsequently moved to Premier League side Everton for a total of £5 million in August 2006. He was voted player's Player of the Season by his teammates in the following two seasons. Lescott moved to Manchester City in August 2009 for a reported £22 million and spent five seasons at the club, winning two league titles, an FA Cup and a League Cup. After his release in 2014, he joined West Bromwich Albion on a free transfer and Aston Villa a year later.

Internationally, Lescott represented England at various youth levels before making his first team debut in 2007 against Estonia in the UEFA Euro 2008 qualifiers. He represented the country at UEFA Euro 2012, scoring England's first goal of the tournament in their opening game, a 1–1 draw against France.
